Investing with a positive social and environmental impact is an increasingly important issue for investors, and can be achieved alongside competitive market returns. Investing with impact can also help incorporate risk and return drivers which would otherwise not be considered. The Fund wishes to invest in a way that minimises negative impacts on society and the environment and, where possible, makes a positive contribution.

We have used the Impact Investing Principles to set an investment belief around impact, worked with our consultants to identify opportunities to implement our allocations to affordable housing and climate solutions, reported on our progress in our first ever Affordable Housing Impact Report, and used our comms to explain our approach to our stakeholders.
We are passionate about transparency and information sharing with our members, not only ensuring they understand their benefits but also aware of the positive impact their pension is making. We are so proud that our film was recognised for the Best Climate Change Member Communication award! We loved visiting some of our investments, and taking the time to not just tell but actively show our members what our approach to investing looks like.
